Hacienda San Gabriel de las Palmas is a boutique hotel located in the Amacuzac countryside near Cuernavaca.
Set among beautiful grounds, with soring palm trees, tranquil fountains and waterfalls, this 16th century Franciscan monastery was built on the order of conquistador Hernán Cortés and is now a luxury hotel.
